Coach Itinerary

Experience A Grand Tour Of Italy

Day 1
Ferry to Calais and overnight stay in France on a bed and breakfast basis. 

Day 2
Travel onwards to our overnight hotel in northern Italy, with dinner included.

Day 3
We continue on to our hotel in Montecatini Terme, stopping en-route in Pisa, famous for its leaning tower.

Day 4 – Florence
We catch the train from Montecatini to Florence, undoubtedly one of Italy’s most charming cities, where we enjoy a guided walking tour. Just some of the city’s highlights include the Palazzo Vecchio, Giotti’s Bell Tower and the Ponte Vecchio, Florence’s lovely ‘Old Bridge’, which is still occupied by gold and silversmiths today. We spend a second night at our Montecatini Terme hotel.

Day 5 – Siena
We leave Montecatini and travel via Siena, a beautifully-preserved hilltop city surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, best known for its Palio horse race which takes place each summer in the Piazza del Campo. We continue south to our hotel on the outskirts of Rome where we stay for two nights.


Day 6 – Rome
A day in Rome awaits us, where we start with a guided city tour. Highlights of Italy’s capital city include the iconic Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre ever built in the Roman Empire, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain and Vatican City, an independent state within Rome and seat of the Catholic Church. The rest of the day is free to explore the heart throb of a city at your own pace and choose a restaurant for an early dinner before we return to our hotel.

Day 7 – Verona area
We leave Rome and head to our hotel in the Verona area, our base for the next two nights.

Day 8 – Venice
We explore Venice with a guided walking tour. This city is a floating work of art replete with locals lounging back in sunny piazzas with a spritz in hand. Boasting wonderful attractions, highlights include St Mark’s Square, the Bridge of Sighs and of course the gondolas that ply their trade up and down the canals.

Day 9
Travel to our overnight hotel in France, with a light evening meal included. 

Day 10
Continue to Calais for our return ferry home.
